*Venables and another v News Group Papers Ltd and others

Confidential information – Anonymity. The relatives of a child (JB) who had been tortured and murdered in 1993 unsuccessfully applied to vary or discharge an injunction (as amended), so as to permit the reporting of the charges and conviction of one of the persons convicted of JB's murder, namely the person formally known as 'Jon Venables'. The Family Division, in dismissing the application, held that the case for varying the injunction had simply not been made out on the facts.
